Champions League: Arsenal 2-2 Bayern Munich

After Harry Kane appeared to spoil the party in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal at the Emirates, Arsenal managed to salvage a 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich thanks to a late equalizer scored by Leandro Trossard.

After an exciting match, Mikel Arteta’s team will travel to Munich the following week with the tie still up in the air. Arsenal had to withstand a late penalty from Kane to tie the score at one.

Although the England captain was probably lucky to avoid a red card for an elbow on Gabriel, the former Tottenham striker came back to haunt Arsenal once more as Kane emerged as the game’s top scorer against the Gunners at the Emirates.

With a stunning finish from Bukayo Saka into the corner, Arsenal had taken the lead in their first Champions League quarterfinal since 2010. However, Serge Gnabry later made a trip back to the Emirates to score against his former team.

Kane then scored from the penalty spot after Leroy Sane was brought down in the box, and after Gabriel Jesus’s incredible dribble, Trossard tied the score for Arsenal in the second half.

Finally, there was late drama as the referee dismissed Arsenal’s appeals after Saka was brought down in the box by Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.
